I am looking for suggestions and advice on remote controlling the parameters of my VST instruments with hardware.
I have found that by clicking the little down arrow top right of an instrument I can open the remote control editor and using the “learn” function can very nicely get the parameters that I want to control in the instrument assigned to the knobs.
Now I would like to have those knobs be able to be controlled by an external hardware controller with actual knobs.
I think this method would work well once learned by providing a reference or map within Cubase for each instrument with no setup on the hardware controller itself.
Ideally, for example, knobs 1 through 8 in the remote control editor for instrument A would be assigned to 8 knobs on a hardware controller, and when that track was selected within Cubase the hardware knobs would do their assigned duties. All other instruments could also have the Cubase Remote Control assignments learned and applied in the same fashion, and when each instrument was selected, and with the visual of the editor as a reference, the same 8 hardware knobs would act upon the specified parameters.
So I suppose I have two questions:
- Is this possible?
- Are there any suggestions for a simple knob-based controller to accomplish this.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
